    When it was deemed that the Federal government needed to get more hands on in funding [read managing] local education, a counterforce was inevitable, as many distrust Federal competence in something affecting them so directly.

    The Broads of the world are saying, in effect, only those with my resources can provide an alternative to Federal government-run schools. Some teachers and their unions complete the circle by pleading to the Federal government to counter the influence of these actors, who evolved to counter the Federal government in the first place.

    I agree, the resulting clash of the Titans leaves little room for lower level input. Such input might have greater resonance were decision-making more local than Federal, but that would require slaying some sacred cows re Federal control, and seems unlikely at present.
